Ecologically-inspired Home

Maria and Ranjeet Jacob's mud block house on the ECR,Akkarai in Chennai happens to be both down-to-earth and flamboyant at the same time...this house connects with nature both in design and materials used...Rather than bricks, the house has been built with interlocking stabilised mud blocks, with no cement mortar to glue them together...so, the un-plastered walls look great by themselves...
